The Present

Terra Festivalis:
Portugal

Terra Festivalis was first introduced in 2019. The section is always devoted to one national cinematography with growing international recognition (Bulgaria, Israel, Mexico). This year’s edition revises the Portuguese art-house films by Pedro Costa or Miguel Gomes and introduces several talented newcomers. Our multi-themed selection contains new authorial experiments as well as revisions of some of the last century’s pressing issues. There’s only a few filmmakers and production companies in contemporary Portuguese cinema, but the quality of their work is constantly astounding and inspirational.
